I’m delighted that Heads Up is the winner of CRAOL Awards 2016 – Distinction in the category of Commissioned Programming.

Myself and co-producer/presenter Mary Owens worked hard on the programme for Flirt FM and it was an important programme to make in terms of provding support and encouraging positive mental helath for students in Galway.

It is great to be recognised and we couldn’t have done it with out the help of presenter/sound engineer Eoghan Holland, reporters Blue Hanley and Paul Corcoran and the many different contributors and artists on the show.  The programme was made possible with the support of the BAI’s Sound & Vision funding scheme.

The judges said about the series:

‘Heads Up focuses on mental health to a specific, but crucial, sector of our population – students. It is often assumed that students are having a great time without considering the social pressures that they may be under and that may be getting the better of them. Heads Up provides media insight and support to this problem. It is a courageous and informative programme.’
